Jean updated on Dec 11, 2020 Partition Master | How-to Articles

"The hard drive of my Dell laptop is too old to work usually. So recently I bought a new hard drive (SSD) to replace it for better performance. But here a problem comes to me: how can I transfer the system to a new hard drive without reinstalling the system and programs? "

Why You Need OS Migration Software

Many users encounter such a problem when trying to upgrade system disk to a newer or larger one. Generally, there are two ways to change the old hard drive to a new one. The first way is to re-install the Windows system (OS) and all the programs on the new hard drive (HDD/SSD). But most users don't want to choose this method because it is complicated. And the second way is more straightforward: copying or cloning system partition from the old hard drive to a new drive. But to achieve this goal, you have to use an OS migration software.
